Each of these parameters was selected in order to assess the company's commitment to creating a sustainable, profitable enterprise. A team of analysts rated each startup candidate across the 14 parameters, compiling a scorecard which was then used to determine an overall rating for each. External, independent panelists were then brought on board to help conduct an unbiased review of each startup featured in the report. Parameters used included business model, current/forecast revenues, management experience and expertise, industry outlook, sector outlook, capital adequacy, investor success rate, exit options, product/service demand, competition density, product/service reviews, disruption analysis, entry barriers, and comparables.
"To be selected from over 2000 startup candidates for the Top 300 is certainly an honor, but then to be ranked 12th out of the 300 is a real accomplishment," said TwinStrata CEO Nicos Vekiarides. "I think our flexible and efficient delivery model offers companies an easy, affordable, and secure way to begin enjoying the benefits of cloud storage immediately. Given that we require zero capital expenditure and zero risk, our approach has proven to be a viable one. In a competitive market space such as ours, it's rewarding to have our company perform so well against such an extensive evaluation."
